In Legal Terms: Will Talk over Thanksgiving

Today’s topic is one we’ve covered many times but still so many of us die without a will or without having made estate plans. This Thanksgiving is a great time to talk with your family about your plans, their plans, and where the plans are written down.


If you need a starting point for crafting your estate plan, MPB has got a digital worksheet for you. Freewill is a site that will help you organize your estate plan so you can get started. https://www.freewill.com/mpbfoundation


The University of Mississippi Medical Center has a link where you can fill out an Advanced Healthcare Directive.

Sometimes it’s good to hear what others are asking – that will lead you to think about your own situation. In Legal Terms has produced around 3 shows each year for the last 5 years discussing estate planning. Listening to these podcast can help you know what to do.
